    So I just made my 30 days and as I understand it I get a raise and go up from $16.10 to $17.25. How do the raises work from here on out?

    They go up.

    Details are in your contract book.

    I wouldn't bank on making book just yet. If you "just" got your 30 in, chances are part of the 30 does not count.

    I would make your contract book "handy". Lot of useful information.

    Making book? Part of the 30 doesn't count?

    What are you talking about?

    The free period is the time frame in which the days you work do not count toward your seniority. In my district it is 11/10-12/31.

    Thats not how it works out here. There is no free period, the shop steward I met with on Friday would have discussed that with me.

    Did they tell you you made your 30 days or are you assuming you made your 30 days. I'd wait till I say my next pay check to see if I got a raise before your shoot yourself in your foot.

    Anyways

    Start $16.10
    30 days $17.25
    12 months $18.25
    24 months $20.75
    36 months Top rate currently $31.785 in my area.

    There's no free period in the western region, I believe. I just texted a couple old time drivers to ask. But, I'm pretty sure this would have been brought up before and they wouldn't have pulled me in the office and acted like it was such a big decision if that was the case.

    Nope you are. The free period is only for seasonal hire.
